A mainly good/best topmaking selection of 17.5 to 19.5mic again under pressure today with Chinese indent buyers less active. 20.0 to 21.5mic opened generally unchanged and then eased slightly as sale progressed to close 5/10ac cheaper.

Fine Merino skirtings with less than 4%vm followed the fleece to close 10/15ac cheaper today. Poorer and lower style wools carrying higher vm closed 20/30ac cheaper.

Prems and lamb’s types in the 42-44HM range closed with finer microns 10/15ac cheaper and 19.0mic & coarser 15/20ac cheaper. Longer lambs/prems in the 46-54HM range closed with finer microns 10ac cheaper & 19.0 to 20.0mic 10/15ac cheaper in a larger selection today.
